Waterbrook 2005 Mélange Red (Columbia Valley (WA))
Merlot, Cabernet, Cab Franc, Sangiovese and Syrah all pour into this graceful and accommodating blend, particularly ripe and fruity in the excellent 2005 vintage. It puts the mixed red fruits up front, lays back on the oak, and makes itself flexible enough for anything from a picnic to a poulet. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
